*Girls in Pants

*The Second Summer of the Sisterhood

*Forever in Blue

The girls encounter unexpected friends, exotic guys, and even new family members in their summer of surprises. They stuggle to keep in touch, but also realize how much they depend on one another.

Bridget is bright and bold; Carmen in loving and impulsive. Lena is artistic and beautiful, while Tibby is reserved and sarcastic. It's a good thing they have been friends since birth, because they balance each other but probably wouldn't have found one another at school. Carmen is a rock for her friends, and it's her idea to share the pants so that they can be together when they are apart.
